Abstract:

"THE BABY DOLL MURDERS Cliff Tierney was trained by Markham to be the best, a carny's carny. Then Holly entered his life and messed things up--and Markham had Tierney stomped. But that was months ago. Now Tierney is back, and Markham wants him to handle a blackmailer for him. Ann should be easy. She's in love with Cliff. But then Markham brings Holly back into the picture, and the set-up becomes complicated. Because Holly's father is the eminent Dr. Thad Ross, who not only controls the town but is involved in Ann's blackmail scheme. And Holly, well she's just as dangerous as her father, and more than a match for Tierney's carny skills. KILLER TAKE ALL! Tony Pearson knows he is no match for Steve Locke, Fern's new husband. Locke has the charm, the drive and the physical prowess he doesn't. He also has Fern. But as a failed golf pro, Tony doesn't have that many options either, and takes Locke up on his offer to work for Tony's boss, Max Baird. Max is a reformed gangster trying to fit in. He even bought a Rembrandt to show off his class. But now he needs the bucks more than the art, and Locke calls in an expert to appraise the painting. That's when they discover that the painting Max owns is a forgery. And who gets framed as the fall guy? Why, Tony, of course. FRENZY After the plan to snatch the boss's girl and some of his casino profits backfires, Norman Sands rails it back to his hometown to lick his wounds. His brother Matt lives there, and Laurie, who used to be his girl, now engaged to Matt. But with Matt and Laurie's help, Norm knows there is a killing to be made here, if he can just figure the angle. When he meets up with the town's movers, he realizes that Murdoch is the real power here. And when he meets Shannon, he knows he has found the perfect match--she's as greedy as he is. But Shannon is Murdoch's girl, and Murdoch isn't giving up anything without a fight."--
